Second US judge blocks Trump administration from ending DACA program

(Reuters) - A second U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trumpís decision to end a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children from deportation.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, cannot end in March as planned, a victory for state attorneys general and immigrants who sued the Republican administration.

The decision is similar to an earlier ruling by a federal judge in San Francisco that DACA must remain in place while litigation over Trumpís decision unfolds. The legal battle over DACA could complicate a debate currently underway in Congress on whether to change the nationís immigration laws.

The Supreme Court on Friday is due to consider whether to take up the administrationís appeal of the San Francisco ruling. The court could announce as soon as Friday afternoon whether it is hearing the case.

1. Now, Who Orders ICE to Ratchet Down Their Arrests and Deportations?

2. Exactly. I don't believe Trump will comply with the court. What happens then?

He's not complying with Congress. Why do we think he will comply with the court? He thinks he's above the law.

3. Look to the picture of Andrew Jackson he proudly displays

the courts said his depopulation of the Indians was against the law. Jackson said 'Let the court enforce it', completely blew off even the courts.

5. You assume much

There isn't any reason to believe that ICE will ratchet down anything!
